Ann Arbor’s annual downtown trick-or-treating canceled over safety concerns

ANN ARBOR – The Main Street Area Association announced it is canceling its annual downtown trick-or-treat event due to safety concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Each year for the beloved tradition, participating business owners place balloons outside their doors and greet trick-or-treaters and their families.

However, it doesn’t mean Halloween is completely canceled downtown. Other events celebrating the spooky holiday and general autumn season will be taking place, including:

  • Family-friendly activities with the Ann Arbor District Library, including a costume and pumpkin contest
  • A scavenger hunt at Cherry Republic throughout October
  • Grizzly Peak’s Socially Distanced Pups on the Patio Costume Contest
  • Halloween-themed Le Bon Macarons
  • A hot mulled mead kit at Bløm Meadworks
  • Halloween deals at Kouzina & Thrive Juicery
